Teacher in molest case released on police bail


KAJANG: The religious primary school teacher who allegedly molested six male students has been released on police bail after his remand expired Thursday.

Last Friday, police obtained a four-day remand order on the teacher, which expired on Monday.

Magistrate's court registrar Sharifah Fazilah Zulkifli on Monday allowed the application to extend the remand on the 29-year-old teacher from a school in Bandar Baru Bangi until Thursday to allow further investigations.

The incident came to light after the father of a 12-year-old student lodged a police report on May 10 over the alleged incident which occurred last month.

It was reported that the boy told the father that the teacher had touched his penis while he was reading.

It is believed that five other students have come forward alleging incidents of molest by the male teacher while they were in the school since 2014.

So far, six police reports have been lodged by parents and the school Parent-Teachers Association (PTA).

The case is classified under Section 354/377D of the Penal Code for assault or use of criminal force with intent to outrage a person's modesty.
